Much like the coming autumn leaves, the seasonally inspired collections are dropping left and right. From modernist-architecture-inspired rugs to trompe-l’oeil-style wallcoverings, here are some standouts from the latest round of launches.
Maiden Home released a minimalist assortment of sculptural designs just in time for summer’s end. Hand-crafted by artisans in North Carolina, the series introduces four heirloom-quality furniture pieces including the curvy Kenmare chair, the clean-lined Bedford dining table and the velvet-upholstered Mulberry ottoman.
Hartmann&Forbes debuted its first collection with Lisa Kanning. A love letter to the New York designer’s rural Montana roots, the series offers an assortment of natural grass-weave window treatments and textured wallpapers, including the striated Cenote window covering and the trompe-l’oeil-style Rocks wallcovering.
Workshop/APD dropped its second collection for Desiron. The highly collectible series boasts 11 customizable furniture designs crafted from tactile materials such as an ergonomic dining chair that sits on a trio of sculpted wood legs and a voluptuous coffee table with a solid-brass-accented base.
Artist Hera Ford unveiled an enchanting collaboration with Schumacher. Drawing inspiration from the romantic wildflowers that grew on the Mississippi plantation where her grandmother was born, the collection features hand-drawn textile and wallcovering patterns, such as the butterfly-clad Come Back As A Flower and the botanical Orchids Have Dreams.
Danish heritage brand Fritz Hansen unveiled a characterful fall collection in honor of its 150th anniversary. The series offers a mix of fresh designs and reimagined versions of historic pieces, including a 1990s-style solid brass smiley face hook and Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 chair in two new colorways.
Fermoie rolled out two artisanal fabric lines named Eythorne and Hackford. Available in 13 colorways, the former boasts a small-scale pineapple motif cast on a buttery soft cotton ground, while the latter re-imagines an old-school silk-and-wool damask weave printed on pure linen.
Italian lighting brand Lodes premiered an ethereal pair of collaborations with Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc and Tokyo brand YOY. The first, Elara, offers a spherical suspension lamp inspired by astral motion within the cosmos, while the second, Hover, features a series of table and floor lamps with shades that appear to float in thin air.
Erik Lindström called on Serena Dugan Studio to create a modernist collection of hand-knotted rugs for its Artisan line. An homage to midcentury architect Luis Barragán, the series consists of three colorful geometric designs named after neighborhoods in Mexico City, including the kaleidoscopic Condesa, the gradient-toned Polanco and the graphic Roma.
Herman Miller reintroduced its legendary Eames Molded Plastic chair in 100 percent recycled plastic. Originally released in 1950, the beloved shell chair is available in the eco-conscious material and comes in a dozen distinct colorways, including nine fresh hues such as Deep Yellow, Brick Red and Pale Blue.
Anglepoise launched two new editions of the Type 75 desk lamp in collaboration with Paul Smith. The first, Edition 5, features the sleek stunner in a head-to-toe black finish, while Edition 6 offers the same design in all-white.
Ann Gish introduced the Lever du Soleil series into its ongoing collaboration with The Met. Available as euro pillows, a padded throw and cut yardage, the bold jacquard pattern features a curved-and-striped art deco motif inspired by a French print the designer discovered in the museum’s archives.
